Yes,it's possible to connect ATV3 to your Yamaha avr, connect HDMI from your ATV3 to Samsung LED TV an hook another fiber optic cable from ATV3 to your avr.Hi. Is it possible to use my Yamaha RX-V430 receiver to have a home theatre surround sound system on my ATV3 that is connected to a Samsung LED TV? I really need your expertise on this.
The optical audio cable is required to get the hidef sound from the HDTV to the audio receiver. The HDMI from the ATV only moves it to the Tv.if your using HDMI why do you need the optic cable since (HD)MI will transmit hidef sound and pic
You're not going to get surround sound from a headphone jack. Not sure what the point of that was.My setup is really weird. I got a 3.5mm jack that has 3 female RCA's in it. Plugged in 3 male RCA's to the female, and the other end is to the 3 female RCA's in the back of my receiver. Then plugged the 3.5mm jack to the headphones jack of my TV. Changed the receiver mode to V/Aux and got the audio but there are radio noises.
On the other hand, I removed the optical audio cable from the DVD then plugged it in my ATV3. I also got the same audio.
